Fossil Creek Kriek 2010

This vintage of Fossil Creek Kriek was created as a 50/50 blend of two sour beers, and a lot of cherries. Bottled September 2010.
  • A sour dunkelweizen, brewed as a club project. Several members of The Liquid Poets homebrew club brewed a dunkelweizen to the same recipe, and aged it eight months in a 55-gallon barrel at the New Belgium Brewing Company.
  • A standard pale sour beer (Called Biohazard Ale), aged for a year in my barrel in my basement.
  • Blend equal amounts of these two beers, and rack onto 7 lbs of Nanking cherries and 3 lbs of pie cherries.
  • Age two months on cherries, then rack off the cherries and let settle for a month before bottling.
